of that this afternoon. in a statement to cnn, the nfl said quote, there were some fluctuations in the frequency of the power supply but not in the amount of the power supplied to the building. this again referring to the period of the rehearsals that beyonce was having in the week leading up to the super bowl. the league said there were no mass power outages during the rehearsals. they also said it was because of those power issues during the rehearsal that they decided to have beyonce's team use a completely different power supply from the superdome's grid for the actual halftime show itself. now, we also caught up with doug thornton of the smg group, group that manages the superdome. here's what he had to say about beyonce's rehearsals. >> yes, we had a couple fuses blown, there were a couple circuits that were overloaded, but it had nothing to do with this power outage. it's totally unrelated. >> reporter: thornton says that that sometimes happens when you've got outside show producers coming in who are not familiar with the circuitry of the building. we contacted beyonce's representatives.
